SEOUL, July 6 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co. on Thursday showcased the refurbished edition of the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, whose production was suspended last year due to battery issues.

SK Telecom Co., the country's No. 1 mobile carrier, said it will kick off sales of the Galaxy Note FE, or Fan Edition, starting Friday.

The price tag on the Galaxy Note FE stands at 699,600 won (US$606). The device comes in four colors: gold, silver, blue and black.

The South Korean tech giant suspended production and sales of the Galaxy Note 7 last year as some of the devices caught fire while charging. A probe revealed that the problems were due to the non-removable battery.
